-imposed deadline. also new this morning, an official with the centers for medicare and medicaid says it is close to supporting 50,000 users at one time. joining me now is andy sullivan and kevin serilly. >> thanks for having me. >> how critical is it that the obama administration gets it right and meets this deadline tonight? >> the website will still be a work in progress the even if they get 50,000 users. they're going to need a lot more people to sign up if they want to reach the goal of 7 million signed up by the end of march. one thing getting less attention is the fact that these troubles forced it so soft pedal its marketing of obama care. kaiser family foundation says one-third of uninsured americans don't know that the affordable care act could help them get insurance. this is one thing they're going to have to focus on once they are sure that the website works, which is telling people about it. >> absolutely. that makes people sense. politico suggests that the goal is to avoid that which george w. bush did. really not so much. if the website is fixed by tonight, could the obama adminis
, alex, is to understand that when we rolled out medicare part d when massachusetts did its health care, universal health care system, they had similar delays. there were peaks that april came well into the open enrollment and certainly part did was not without its bugs in the system. the idea is not to point a finger of blame but extend a hand of help on behalf of congress. let's get together and get this thing running. people want to embrace the benefits of the act. i hear it more and more. look, i've been asked to vote 46, 47 times over to repeal the affordable care act by the republican majority in our house. they have wanted to destroy this opportunity for our americans to have health care benefits since its inception. and it's time to really get to work and get the system running. >> representative tomko, is there an educated guess as to what the numbers may be when they're released officially in about a month? do we have any idea, speculation how many people are signing up? >> you know, it's hard to say. in my hope state of new york that has its own exchange, we're at 160,000 or
just like bipartisan members of congress did when we were doing medicare, prescription drug part d, we lack that cooperation now. the republicans have had essentially a fight for failure against obama care and it's been a pitch battle without retreat and unrelenting. so that makes it difficult to just have cooperation on implementation issues which would make things better for all americans, even if you are somebody who doesn't support the health care bill. >> this week the president said that insurers should temporarily restore cancelled plans but he said that without talking to the insurance companies first, just the latest gaffe. what do you think the white house needs to do right now from this point moving forward to get this thing on the right track? >> let me say this, insurance companies are big winners in this. this is essentially a republican designed plan. it was modelled after what governor romney did in massachusetts. there were a lot of democrats who didn't particularly like that, me among them. the insurance companies are going to get 30 to 40 million new customers. if th
. when they rolled out the medicare prescription part d in 2006, big problems with that initially. when they rolled out romney care in massachusetts, big problems initially. nobody remembers those now because those programs ended up being implemented successfully. so if by early next year they've worked out a lot of the kinks, addressed the tech problems, this will be a bump in the road. >> one other quick point i want to make, where obama also is in trouble, and this could be messaging, not substance, if everything ends up working, is this promise he made repeatedly that nothing will change with this law for people who like their insurance. that's not the case. >> for 2%. >> a very small amount, but obama likes telling people stories. he's ridden on that road for a while. now there are stories coming out and they're true. it's not for everybody, but for some. >> all right, guys. talk to you during commercial break. hold that thought. jonathan alter, lynn suite. >>> a small business credit card with amazing rewards. with the spark cash card from capital one, i get 2% cash back on every
